Easy German & European Cooking

Gulasch – Hungarian Stew

Originally “Gulasch” comes from Hungary. Well, Germany is in the middle of Europe, so we get all kinds of delicious recipes from our neighbors and their neighbors.
I can imagine that some younger Germans believe that Gulasch is traditionally German, since it is so common on our dinner table. Every family has their own alternation of the recipe, some cook it more spicy hot, others add vegetable or add more fluid and make it a “Gulasch Soup”

… and talking about neighbors: Thanks to Italy we often enjoy Gulasch with pasta instead of potatoes, not to mention their good red wine! Or how about a wine from France to make it even more European?

 

When I cook Gulasch, I make  a lot of it and freeze it. That saves me a lot of time during the week!

  4. Add onion and beef to the pot and roast from all sides.
  5. Add the tomato paste and continue roasting for a few more minutes to add the flavor to the meat.
  6. Open the cans with the tomatoes and empty them into the pot. Stir well.
  7. If you want to have more sauce, add some water!
  8. Flavor with salt and paprika, then put the lid in the pot and let cook for 60 to 90 minutes (depending on the size of the meat), until the meat falls easily apart.
  9. Now add the garlic and Tabasco, maybe some more paprika to taste and stir. Add more water or broth if needed.
  10. Let cook for a few more minutes, then turn down the heat.
  11. When the Gulasch is not boiling any more, add the sour cream.
  12. Serve with potatoes or pasta, also works with rice. It is also a perfect fit with "Semmelknödel"!
  13. You can add some red wine while cooking but if you have kids, just enjoy the wine with the meal instead.
Recipe Notes

If you don't cook for kids, add red wine while cooking!

  • Dearest as my great grandparent came to the USA from Hungary in 1906 I got history from them. *
    The immigration of German-speaking peoples into Hungary began in approximately 1000, when knights who came in the company of Giselle of Bavaria, the German-born queen of the first King of Hungary, Stephen I, entered the country.
    Our branch of german was Saxony.
